Perfect Crime is the longest running play in the history of New York theater, either on or Off-Broadway. The cast has changed over the years but leading lady Catherine Russell has remained with the show from the very first performance in 1987 and has missed only four of the (now) over 9,000 performances
"In the face of awkward segues within the characters’ dialogue and the lack of chemistry, Perfect Crime is still an intriguing thriller full of unexpected twists and turns. It will leave you unsettled and questioning the motives of its characters like any suspenseful piece of work will do. And in my opinion, that is its strongest asset." Full Review
"There's just no killing New York's currently longest-running play. On Sunday, Warren Manzi's 1987 murder mystery, directed by Jeffrey Hyatt, hits a major mile-marker: 10,000 performances. Having never seen the show before, the time seemed right. As of No. 9,980, there's still life in the modestly diverting thriller." Full Review
"But if you stick with the story - and considering the turgid performances, that's asking a lot - it does make sense and even has a certain thematic elegance. As the illusions reveal themselves, a confusion and sense of terror slowly build. Or at least that's what should happen if the production wasn't so lethargic." Full Review
